Cell Line Authentication Services
Contamination and misidentification of cell lines contributes to a loss of $1 billion per year in research dollars. The NIH and many journals are now requiring or strongly recommending cell line authentication for funding and publication. Endeavor DNA Laboratories provides a cell line authentication service utilizing STR profiling to verify the unique identity of your human cell lines.
The American Tissue Culture Collection (ATCC) Standards Development Organization Workgroup published ASN-0002-2011, which recommends the use of at least eight STR loci (TH01, TPOX, vWA, CSF1PO, D16S539, D7S820, D13S317 and D5S818) plus Amelogenin for human cell line authentication. Endeavor DNA Laboratories exceeds this standard by testing these eight STR loci and Amelogenin plus an additional 15 STR loci to ensure accurate results.
